1. Blood & Oil is a short film I have wanted to shoot for some time. It speaks to all avenues of passionate endeavors and the common thread of desire, determination and relentless pursuit it takes to see them through. That feeling that wakes you in the dead of night, the call to action that courses through your veins. It doesn't matter what you do or what your passion is, there is always room to be challenged, to grow, advance and to be more inspired.

    With that heart and intention, Blood & Oil is about wanting to create, be more awake and to be more alive. I have been lucky enough to both work and play with truly ambitious and talented people that push me more everyday, to those people I say a very special thank you.

    And I thank you for watching and to those who share this film. It was a very ambitious shooting schedule, we shot 16+ set ups in 9 locations in 3 days, not including the pick up/spontaneous shoot days. A behind the scenes blog is being posted on my website, with extra photos and extra footage!

    "The last of the embers cool in the waking dawn
    as the silence echoes through the empty roads
    and the beat of heavy hearts stir the morning air
    The wasteland smiles, a grin tired and stretched too thin

    Built on rotting soil the city starts to crack, the foundations perish and crumble
    Trapped and left wanting, the weary stay hidden behind heavy doors and rusted locks
    The undeserving cling to chances untaken
    There is no escape

    The darkness starts to build
    I welcome the storm with my fists clenched, the aching seething from my bones
    I cannot show you. I cannot take you with me
    The course is already written
    Moving in harmony, tracers strangle out the light
    The consumption of every movement greedy and unsatisfied
    From the wreckage the oil runs
    Turning the blood of the fallen thick and black

    Quiet is the pulse of the driven
    Freedom is not levity, but the untold fight of the knowing
    A force understood only by those who possess it
    Dare to look up
    Dare to breathe

    To trust the hopeful and stack your spine

    No need to call to the willing, they are already at your side
    No need to call them brothers, they already share your fire
    The crushing allure of pure acceleration
    Chase it down
    Chase it down"

  3. Rain trickling over the elephants' skin, the fighters are dancing like tree monkeys in the puddles of water…
    Competition of Boxkator between France and Cambodia in Siem Reap.

    Bokator, or more formally, Labokkatao (ល្បុក្កតោ) is a Cambodian martial art that includes close hand-to-hand combat, ground techniques and weapons. Possibly the oldest existing fighting system in Cambodia, oral tradition indicates that bokator or an early form thereof was the close quarter combat system used by the armies of Angkor 1000 years ago. The term bokator translates as "pounding a lion" from the words bok meaning to pound and tor meaning lion. A common misunderstanding is that bokator refers to all Khmer martial arts while in reality it only represents one particular style. (source: Wikipedia)

    Through the eyes of a young girl suffering from mental illness, CALDERA glimpses into a world of psychosis and explores a world of ambiguous reality and the nature of life and death.

    CALDERA is inspired by my father's struggle with schizoaffective disorder. In states of delusion, my father has danced on the rings of Saturn, spoken with angels, and fled from his demons. He has lived both a fantastical and haunting life, but one that's invisible to the most of us. In our differing understanding of reality, we blindly mandate his medication, assimilate him to our marginalizing culture, and entirely misinterpret him for all he is worth. CALDERA aims to not only venerate my father, but all brilliant minds forged in the haunted depths of psychosis.

    CALDERA was helmed by Evan Viera (Director/Composer/Co-Writer) and Chris Bishop (Co-writer/Animation Supervisor/Story Artist) and was produced at Hampshire College. CALDERA was the first film to go through the Bit Films Incubator Program, where founder and professor Chris Perry (co-producer/editor) invites orphaned independent films to be made on campus with the College's students and resources. MANY students and industry professionals generously donated their time to the making of this film. See below for the full credits list.
